Call for Submission: Join the Milspouse Appreciation & Milfamily Mental Health Blog Hop!

Military Family Mental Health

Military service members, veterans, and their families are extremely resilient , but the stress of war, multiple deployments, and frequent moves can impact their emotional, physical, and overall well-being. During the month of May, USC School of Social Work is bringing bloggers together to help raise awareness by inviting the military community to participate in the Military Family Mental Health campaign. The goal behind this campaign is to celebrate and appreciate the incredible resillience of military spouses and families in honor of Milspouse Appreciation Day (5/9/14) and build public recognition about the importance of mental health to overall health and wellness, particularly within the military community.

  • Are you a military spouse with a deployed active duty service member?
  • Are you a family member or friend of an active duty service member or veteran?
  • Are you a veteran with a story to share?
  • If this sounds like you, we invite you participate in the #MilfamMH campaign!

    Mental health impacts the entire military community. No matter who you are or what you normally blog about, we want to hear your story, so we can highlight the importance of raising awareness about mental health issues, societal stereotypes and the challenges of transitioning to civilian life.
